Disney hotels, with easy access to the four parks Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom, are to be found in Lake Buena Vista.
Seven hotels that are perfectly placed also for a visit to Disney Springs.
Here we find the absolutely best accommodations near the Disney’s parks.
We have selected seven Disney hotels, all of which are located (except the Hyatt) within the Walt Disney World Resort area and therefore very close to Disney’s four theme parks.
Additionally, the hotels are adjacent to Disney Springs (previously known as Downtown Disney), the best entertainment venue in Orlando during the night time.
Disney hotels with Mickey Mouse in the lobby
Many years of experience in visits to Orlando and its theme parks have given us very extensive knowledge of the hotel market. What to avoid and what to go for.
Lake Buena Vista is an excellent example of the latter. Therefore a special page about our Disney hotel favorites in Lake Buena Vista/Disney Springs.

We are also naming a few Disney hotels directly connected to the mighty Disney empire. But being brutally honest, we feel these are not worth the price.
Although a stay here comes with some bonuses, you pay a lot just to be greeted by Mickey Mouse in the lobby.
